area hospitals with breathing difficulties. >> opec ministers keeping output ceiling at 30 million bar. a day prices are relatively high. the average cost of the group's oil produced by opec countries has been about $100 a barrel for two years. that's a first of opec's history here in the u.s. believe it or not we have a glut of u.s. crude it is around $86 a barrel. dozens more in analysts saying that he thinks the u.s. crude could drop to $50 a barrel. why not why not a huge drop in gas prices? we don't have enough refineries. there has been a new refinery built the u.s. in 1976. all the soil is not backing up at u.s. refineries. >> detectives of pleasant hill say copycat criminal may be to blame for the latest by bomb incident outside a school there. a pipe bomb some outside pleasant hill and the school yesterday. it did not go off and will start. this pipe bomb case marks the second three days. on saturday battles look this mailbox, a short time later officers as mantle another pipe bomb and arrested three things. at this point they're not linking the case to the one of the elementa
that opec does, every time we see unrest in the middle east, we see a spike in oil, does that mean more we're rousing here in the u.s. we won't be impacting by that as much? >> yeah. i mean the more domestic supply we have, the less we depend on opec ps of the world, no question. the problem we have as the world though, 92 million barrels a day roughly what the production is. that is about a million barrels a day of excess capacity. so any little flare-up in the middle east will impact world oil prices. ashley: so do you think we'll be energy independent anytime soon? we're almost there. >> yeah. i think by "20/20" -- 2020 we have legitimate chance between all the natural gas we're bringing on and oil we're bringing on, on energy equivalent basis we'll be independent. we'll be importing oil and exporting gas as lng, very good, interesting stuff. john shiller, chairman of energy defend one. john, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having us. tracy: you make a great point, saudi arabia will not be very happy about our quest for independence. ashley: that is real threat to
, the opec secretary said he doesn't see any threat from u.s. shale product, this after the uae minister has suggested a response from the oil ministers in vienna. gary ross, welcome. >> nice to be here. >> the shale revolution in the u.s., is it a game changer as much as we're hearing from jamie dimon, arcelormittal? do you think this is going to make the u.s. energy independent, almost? >> well, we think it is. it's huge. we've statemented about 11110 billion pounds of recovery oil from shale crude. u.s. product will be going up overall, about a million barrels a day in 2013. about 65% of it will be shale crude. and it will continue to grow. >> people should understand we're not just talking about gas. we're talking about methods that's right.extract more oil. gas is clearly surplus. we're going to have l&g exports in the united states. we have a long-term growth phenomenon for natural gas. what people don't realize is how huge the oil is. when we talk about $110 billion of recovered oil, that's on 7.5% recovery rate. the resource itself is huge. it's not just the united states. it's all o
with the opec meeting. in addition to the fed that comes out tomorrow. the expectation is, that opec will leave their current quota unchanged, around 30 million barrels per day. the actual production, around 31 million barrels a day. there may not be any change to that. the key will be what happens in terms of the election of a new secretary-general and saudi arabia in the running for that as well. back to you. >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. i did want to look at shares of largest for-profit hospital in the country. a secondary offering this morning. hga finds itself in the of so many movements of the capital structure, reflective of the 250i78s. don't forget, they borrow at incredibly low rates not long ago, $1 billion, to pay a special dividend. you want to pay a special dividend prior to any tax increase on dividends as well. capital gains figuring into that debate, let's call it at this point that we've been detailing down in d.c. with our "mission critical" coverage. this morning, two of the owners of hca, it was a huge leverage back in '05, and '06, almost four times their money at
. it required outstanding diplomacy and -- to balance the risks and demands of peace in the sort of opec security environment of the cold war period, which perhaps, perhaps most people to remember but perhaps some do not. so, before turning the program over to marvin though, i would just like to mention, we have a new book that's very pertinent to the subject, the reagan-gorbachev arms control breakthrough, edited by david t. jones, and dedicated to ambassador, the late ambassador maynard whitman, who was the principal inf treaty negotiator and leader of or inf delegation. and copies of this book are available at the baca the room for those of you who would like to purchase one afterwards. so without further a due it's my pleasure, to wish all happy holidays and to turn the program over to marvin. marvin? >> thank you very much, this. it's always a pleasure for me to be asked to come here to moderate a panel. my life has been absolved with the foreign service for an awful long time. though i only work in the foreign service for a year and a half. 1956-seven and moscow. but since that tim
's where crude oil breaks out to the upside. we start to get an upward trend. opec's 2013 target is around $100. i think we'll move up into the mid-90s and probably press through that $100. one of the burdens we have is we do have an abundance of supply in the u.s. the u.s. won't export any crude oil, but i think the possibility of us starting to consume more, would drive and help support those higher prices. >> when you put on those longs, i'm wondering, because this week is a holiday shortened week. congress is coming back on the 27th. is this a trade for 2013? >> yeah, it is more of a trade for 2013. i wiould start to look at fartherer out contracts, to like december 2013, and play the entire year's action, just by being long that one contract. but i would strongly wait until after the beginning of the year, because of the weaker volume, the lack of participants. and i think that the price is really going to shop around. >> nat gas prices taking a step back. what do you see in the immediate future and what is the main catalyst here? the weather seems to be sort of calm. >> yeah. that's
